Headaches and sinus problem : sinusitis ?

User Profile
I was having such kind of headache before and i went to the hospital in Aug 2006. they did my CT scan, Check my eyes and found no problem in any thing. And prescribed me Migrane pills.

Again i am having the same problem and i used migrane but it did helped out. then my friend told me you have sinus problem. I took sinus pills and it felt better. I am having the same thing from the last 2 months. And one more strange thing is that i never had flu or cold from the last 2 3 years. my mucus is very sticky and hard to come out. I have to take it out through mouth. its kind of yellowish green.

Muscels in my neck cracks like any thing on the right side. My eye and skull hurts. please help me out.

Thanks,

A sinus headache is due to sinus inflammation (sinusitis). Headache caused by sinusitis is mainly located in the frontal part of the head but it can spread to the eye and upper jaw. Besides a headache, sinusitis also manifests with a stuffed nose, nose secretion and sore throat. Further, mucus secretion collects in the throat when one gets up in the morning. Sinusitis can be proven by an ENT-examination. Sinusitis is treated with antibiotics, expectorants and corticosteroids. You can consult an ENT-specialist for an expert opinion.
